Market Street Shoes

Market Street Athlete in Seattle, WA has been collecting gently worn shoes for Soles4Souls for about a year now.

"We look at it as an opportunity to have a way for the community to give back to people in need," said owner Ryan Stauffer.

Inside his store, the collection box is right next to the register so customers who buy new shoes know they can come back with their old, unwanted shoes. And they do.

"In fact, just this morning, someone came in with two shopping bags full," Stauffer said.

The Market Street Athlete collects 250 pairs of shoes each month.
